The first solo LP from the prolific and in-demand Dave Okumu.
Already one of Britain’s most respected and sought-after songwriters, producers and musicians, Okumu has collaborated with an array of artists, including; Arlo Parks, Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien, St Vincent, Tony Allen, Jessie Ware, Grace Jones, David Lynch and Adele. He is also the founder, singer and guitarist of Mercury nominated band The Invisible.
Okumu will release his first full-length offering, Knopperz, on 24th September via Transgressive Records. The wholly instrumental album unites hip-hop, jazz and experimental electronic music. Partly a homage to J Dilla’s classic Donuts, the record is also inspired by, and uses elements of, friend and pianist Duval Timothy’s album, Sen Am.
"At the beginning, you hear a sample of Duval's piano from the original recording which then merges into a new sonic landscape. Somehow this is what Duval's piece represented to me - a relocation, a spiritual pilgrimage, finding oneself and taking hold in alternate soil. This type of journey is never easy and is usually characterised by twists and turns, I wanted the piece to reflect that feeling."
